Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software that can modify specific settings on your server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can do anything you'd like. You may also create various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS web hosting plans that we provide are appropriate for many different purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your world-wide web content through a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side apps that may be needed for your web sites and even by offline applications, for instance VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. Thus, you will be able to select the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll choose throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid if you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the option to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your site content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
